Just about every four years Doc schleps it over to Düsseldorf for the Drupa printing trade show – the biggest in the world. This year the giant event takes place May 3-16, 2012 and is shaping up by many accounts to be "The Inkjet Drupa."

Inkjet technology has come a long way in recent years and is scaling up to commercial production quite nicely, with many offerings from all the major press manufacturers. In digital printing, inkjet is now just as viable for many uses as toner-based systems.

So I've been watching with interest a great series of articles by printing industry veteran and all-around-nice guy David Zwang, over at What They Think.

In one installment, Dave looks specifically at the inkjet offerings from Ricoh – he's tackled other manufacturers in earlier installments and still has a few to go, so the series is worth keeping an eye on.

If you're curious about the inner workings of inkjet technology, Dave's series is a great primer on all the major players. Well worth a look.
